Was the crime worth 4 games? I never thought so. But he's getting nothing. We cooperated during the whole "bountygate" crap, and the supposed evidence were pieces of paper stating imaginary rewards for hurting players... None of those targeted players were actually hurt in the games. It was obvious rhetoric, and yet we lost our coach for the entire year, a couple players for half the season and lost draft picks.

That's my beef. We haven't learned anything new about Roger Goodell in this process. I want to know where the legal system was for the Saints.
Oh yeah, I understand your frustration and agree with quite a few of your points. I was pretty pissed off about the raw deal NO got as well. Other than Vilma, if I remember correctly, the system did fail the Saints, but more so because they accepted Roger's edict rather then elevate the issue, unlike Brady. "People do to you what you let them". IDK, maybe the bounty issue was too big & had too many moving parts for the Saints to adequately mount a legal defense, but I wish they had. I don't want to rehash all that, .

My main point remains that Brady got nothing because of Roger's pride, which I hope is going before his fall, as they said in biblical times.

Personally, I think Brady, as well as any other professional QB, instructs his staff to inflate/deflate the balls to their individual preference. Probably why Peyton Manning refused to comment on the whole thing. This was the Indianapolis Colts being petty little biotches, IMO.

As for the cellphone thing, I've cleared data, removed sim cards, batteries, et ... on every cellphone I've disposed off, so I'm not going to fault a celebrity for doing that. Only in the court of Roger Goodell can you convict on circumstantial evidence, #shrug.

At the end of the day, I'm just glad RG was exposed and I know we agree on that.
